Need recommendation for TT interior cloth cleaner...

Just was wondering what folks recommend to clean couch and cushions in their TT's. The cushions are fairly clean but the sofa seat seems a little dull. Don't want to use anything that will hurt the fabric or foam underneath...Thanks

You should be able to use any upholstery cleaner, found at your local grocery store in the soap & cleaning products aisle. Just follow the directions on the label

The foam on the inside of the cushions is pretty sturdy and will hold up fine. (I've heard of people taking the foam out of their cushions and putting them in the bath tub to clean them! I don't know if I would do that... but seemed to work for them.)

Just make sure to let everything air dry thoroughly for a few days before use to prevent mildew.

Hope this helps! - Cassi

Most cushions have a zipper on the back seam, just unzip and remove foam then take fabric to your local dry cleaners.

Can't remove the foam and toss them in the washer? Or would that ruin them?

Might, but that would be my second suggestion.

It depends... if they're older cushions, they tend to dry rot, if they're flaky and crumbly, I wouldn't risk washing the cushions. But if they're in good shape, you should be fine. But again make sure you let them air dry completely or they'll be worse than when you started.

You might even be able to get away with washing them by hand or in the wash on gentle cycle and then letting them air dry.

I wash the covers for my couch in my living room all the time, they've held up great. But I suppose it depends on the fabric!

Cool, thanks.

Will be picking the rv up later today. Then to start the fun of top to bottom cleaning.

There are quite a few places that rent upholstery cleaners. Some are the same ones used for carpet cleaning. They have a separate attachment that makes it a good cleaner for fabrics as well. That would be my first choice. Spray on fabric cleaners always seem to spot clean.
